I am fascinated by this concept! I haven’t started reading yet, but can’t wait to begin. I also shared your book with a family member, whose alley it is right up.

Jacqui, I am hooked.  I’ve only read up thru the 1st chapter. I can place myself in the room with Maggie, Clem, Kai and Gray.

Hi all! This email is just going out to those who followed a project of mine, It Started Beneath a Sepia Sky, on Inkshares. You may have received a launch email from Inkshares at some point recently.

I’ve entered the novel into the Inkshares 2020 All Genre Manuscript Contest

Unlike my other two novels which relied on preorders to secure a publishing contract, preorders are not necessary this time around, but are appreciated.  Winners of this contest will be selected based on reader engagement. So, on that note, if you are up for checking out my posted chapters and leaving a comment or review, I would appreciate it! 

This story is one that I’m incredibly excited to share with all of you. A pilot version of this story, that I have been editing alongside the novel, has already garnered a few accolades including: 

  • Honorable Mention in the Writer’s Digest Annual Writing Competition(Script Category)
  • Semifinalist, Filmmatic TV Pilot Awards  
  • Quarterfinalist, TSL Free Screenplay Contest  

I hope you enjoy it!


A shrewd group of scientists orchestrate a global hoax by telling the world an asteroid is headed toward Earth, forcing leaders who only care about self-interest underground until the planet has a chance to heal itself.

In 2045, the forests are burning, the oceans are rising, corruption is growing, and a group of scientists take matters into their own hands.

This is their confession
